Well, seems like our generation needs some enlightenment. Here’s my comment in response to *some* people’s opinions and care-free thoughts on how the Earth will not end. ‘We have nothing to worry about.’ ‘WE won’t die. Only our great grandchildren will:D’ ‘Nothing for us to be concerned of.’ ‘Future generations? Pssh.’
I would say that if you’re a part of this group of people, read on.
Hmm. Well, little lesson here from bliss. *ahem* Global warming. Our use and dependence on oil(petroleum and natural gas and fossil fuels being burned for our factories, cars, etc.) lets out tons of pollution everyday into the atmosphere. This causes greenhouse gases. Some gases do escape into space, but MOST of it stays inside the Earth’s atmosphere due to its gravitational pull. Theses gases absorb heat from the sun and help the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect causes the Earth to heat up(in moderation and as a natural cause this is good, without it we would be dead, it causes Earth to be able to support life[nice temperature]). But excess heat is bad. The ice glaciers in the north pole are melting. Just in the last 10 years the ice has started to melt too fast, too soon. This would cause more water to enter Thermohaline CirculationEarth’s conveyor belt’, made of water– causes water to go around. Helps give us tides and ocean currents. It keeps the Earth’s water going.) When this gets too much water, our shores will start to flood. Think about it, there are tons and tons of glaciers holding water. And when they’ve all melted? Because of us? Earth will flood.
Glaciers are melting at a fast rate during OUR generation. So yes, you could die in your lifetime. Yes, you should be worried. Yes, you should be trying to make a change. And yes, this is a serious topic.
